Hi 

Looking at the different specs what is the difference between the Media nav compared to the r-link?

I understand the r-link can have different apps loaded so is the media nav just the same as r-link but cannot 'expand' on the apps loaded?

is the sat nave function the same on both?

Is the screen on both 'resistive'

Confused

Thanks

Hi and welcome along, this is taken direct from Renault's info:

Renault Captur boasts a unique double multimedia system, with its central docking station for an integrated 7″ tablet. The navigation system, radio, telephone and networking for mobile appliances are all grouped together in the same place. But MEDIA-NAV and Renault R-Link serve different but close-fitting purposes:

- Accessing essential multimedia functions is easier than ever with MEDIA-NAV. With its 2D and 3D birdview displays, and audio and multimedia data functions, the Nav N Go navigation system meets the needs of most users. The NAVTEQ maps are updated by a dedicated web interface.

- Renault R-Link is connected to both the car and the internet at the same time. The complete, attractive and user-friendly Renault R-Link system in Renault Captur offers motorists all the services that they have also dreamt of. With around 50 apps, the R-Link Store is already well placed to set the standard as an automotive application provider.

For full info on R-Link see here: http://www.capturownersclub.co.uk/news/r-link/

The Media Nav system provides all the basic multimedia functions through a touchscreen display, it is intuitive to use and, in addition to the radio, includes Bluetooth® connectivity for audio streaming and hands-free telephony. Portable music players can be connected via the USb port or jack socket. Media Nav also incorporates Nav N Go navigation with 2D and 3D (birdview) display. The UsB port and a dedicated web interface make it easy to update NAVTEQ maps.

As far as I'm aware the differences are the following:

TomTom maps (MediaNav isn't)
4 x 35w Arkamys speakers with 2 tweeters (MediaNav is 4 x 20w)
Apps
SD card slot
Watch movies

Another bid thing for me was the USB slot is in front of the gear stick, on the MediaNav it's above the screen and I think that would just look silly and get in the way. But that's personal preference and if your not going to use USB for music or iPod then it makes no difference. But bare in mind there is no CD player on either.

I believe that's everything but there may be more, someone correct me if iv got something wrong.

What is not made clear is that, with R-Link, you have to pay another £110 for the European mapping, even if you don't want/need it.

When do you pay that? Is it included in the £450? I have ordered one with it but have not been told about that.

I ordered mine on June 24th and my dealer checked with Renault and it was £450 + £110. However, looking round Renaul'ts website (which this afternoon has no Captur configurator) it gives the impression it's optional again.
I think I will ring my dealer - again!

Yeah id check that. I checked the brochure I got from the dealer and that gives the impression it is optional. I then spoke to a live chat assistant on Renaults website and they have said it is optional. Just like using any TomTom product, you buy the maps if you need them.

Id have cancelled it too if that was the case.

Let us know what they say.

Also... going back to the USB on the MediaNav. If anyone wants to use a USB stick for their music I think something like this would be a good idea:

Much less invasive!

I have found another difference when specifying the R-Link;

All versions of Renault Captur feature four large-diameter (165mm) loudspeakers as standard or, when R-Link is specified, four woofers and two tweeters.

Yeah, those 4 are 35w too instead of 20w on the MediaNav. Has the Arkamys 3D sound too. But not sure how good that is
